Create a place to play. Pubs have always had some type of game available, although these have varied over the years, from draughts (board games) in Roman times, to rooster fighting somewhere along the way, to the pinball machines of the 1980s. Since the '70s, electronic games have overtaken more traditional games, although pool tables and dart boards are still widely popular.Set up your own favorite games to entertain your friends and family in your home pub. If you have the space, a pool table can be a great investment. If not, a simple dartboard makes for great fun, too.
